I enjoyed the privilege of teaching middle school students in the Bay Area public schools for 32 years. During those years I received the following awards: nominee for County teacher of the year; District teacher of the year (2 times); Assoc. of Calif. School Administrators Teacher of The Year; student nominated teacher of the year(2times); parent nominated Academic Boosters teacher of the year. To me, being a teacher meant having fun while holding students, and myself accountable, thus allowing us the opportunity to celebrate improved learning, grades, and scores.
After retirement, for the past four years, I have been tutoring students who range in grade from kindergarten through grade ten. In addition, I have tutored elementary students in reading and writing. I have loved my work! Working one to one with students is a joy. In particular, I enjoy finding the root of a student's difficulty, finding a solution, implementing the solution and watching students grow in confidence. Parental and student communication is an important element in the tutoring process. When students have difficulty with homework, they are encouraged to call for help. Parents are also encouraged to call with questions as well as comments.
I am looking forward to getting started and hope to work with you and your student in the near future.

Mary Sue is wonderful! She has really helped my daughter with both algebra and geometry. She is patient and easy to work with. I highly recommend her.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
